of president obama's appointments. this week the committee voted unanimously to approve mary jo white as head of the sec. she is expected to be approved by the full senate later this week. meanwhile, the committee voted 12-to-10 on the nomination of consumer financial protection bureau head richard cordray. republicans may vote in order to block the nomination. some lawmakers have aruged they want more than one head to the bureau. the eyes of the sec and department of justice are on microsoft. according to the wall street journal, the probe involves microsoft's relationship with firms accused of bribing foreign officials in china, italy and romania. microsoft is not accused of any wrong doing. however, the sec is charging investment manager craig berkman with promising investors he had special access to pre-ipo stock in facebook, linkedin, zynga and groupon. berkman is accused of using their money to pay off earlier investors, similar to a ponzi scheme. ryan air ceo michael o'leary gives a colorful description of boeing's dreamliner safety concerns. reducing the issues with the new jet's lith
peace process and iran's nuclear peace program. >> the white house is on a charm offensive. last week, barack obama spoke on israeli television, addressing directly some of israel's concerns. > i have been crystal clear about my position on iran possessing a nuclear weapon -- that is a red line for us. it is something that would not only be dangerous for israel but would be dangerous for the world, dangerous for u.s. national security interests. >> in washington, it is no secret that obama does not have a good relationship with israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. even if they put on a united front in public, as here in washington last year. >> they have fundamentally different views of how to advance peace in the area. the president started off by pressuring israel to make concessions, and israel, understandably, resisted and resented, and it has been like that for the last four years, unfortunately. >> israel looks to the u.s. to safeguard its very existence. republicans are quick to point out that while obama visited egypt during his first term, he never went to israel. the
which is now, that iran would be approaching the nuclear threshold. obama said last week, from a year. so they're going to try to hash this out to some degree and present a common front action and of course netanyahu doesn't really truly believe that obama would use military force to stop iran. obama is worried in a netanyahu would use military force prematurely. so there's a lot to talk about in just that one area. >> the president described their relationship as business-like. now we see them in their shirt sleeves. >> wearing the same color tie. >> wearing the same color tie, wid coordinated, joking, chatting. >> what are you going to do? i want a schmooze-fest. >> the truth is they do have what they determine a very candid relationship. they do -- they do exchange views in a very, very deliberate and frank way, and so they do have that openness, about you they aren't friends, one is a right-leaning, and the other is a left-leaning president. they're not going to get along so well. >> so many security helicopters, i assume we'll hear marine one as it makes movements here. you had a
obama travels to israel and the west bank this week, they are trying to assess whether a real opportunity exists for the united states to try to revive the long-stalled israeli/palestinian peace process. but among ordinary palestinians, he'll find no expectations that the u.s. can or will do anything to change the situation. >> when obama came to power we hoped he'd have a different policy but israeli pressures have had influence on him. >> he is not welcome here in palestine. what will he do for us? all of them are standing with israel, not with the palestinian people. >> warner: an even bigger hurding: the deep division among palestinians reflected in the ongoing split between hamas and fatah. this wall on the street in gaza is adorned by the smiles of two dead men-- yasser arafat, the fatah founder and first palestinian president who died in 2004-- and hamas spiritual leader sheikh achmed yassin, assassinated by his israel earlier that year. but the long time member of the p.l.o. says the two movements are poles apart. hamas and fatah have a serious split. it's multifacete
for the middle east. she'll file reports about president obama's trip all week. >> ifill: now we turn to what appears to be an evolving sea change on attitudes toward gay marriage, even as the supreme court prepares to tackle the issue. steadily and remarkably, public and political support far same-sex marriage is on the rise. the shift has been under way in the courts, in congress and, most recently, among leading politicians of both parties. president obama split from opposition to support dominated headlines last year. >> at aertain point i just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that i think same-sex couples should be able to get married. >> ifill: last week, ohio's rob portman became the first senate republican to announce his support. two years ago, he said, his son told him he is gay. >> that launched an interesting process for me which was rethinking my position, talking to my pastor and other religious leaders and going through a process of, at the end, changing my position on the issue. >> ifill: republican response was muted. house speake
last week. in which mr. obama said iran has over a year or so to go before it can claim an operational nuclear weapon if it's even made a decision to build one that raised questions about the differing time lines. the white house and jerusalem have on issue that. differences that the president today acid usely played down. -- unpress -- unprecedented. there is not a lot of daylight between our country are's assessments in terms of where iran is right now. >> with almost everything president obama said about the islamic regime netanyahu agreed but then insisted the issue isn't just iran's final attainment of the bomb but rather weather before that happens the regime's technological advancement make a point of no return strip the western powersability ability to interview screen. >> i think there is a misunderstanding about time. to make a weapon you need two things. you need enriched uranium of a critical amount and then you need a weapon. iran gets to an immunity zone when they get through the enrichment process. in our view. >> in our view, he said. now, netanyahu also said israel can
. >> let's talk about things that may get done or see some progress. president obama said to israeli tv last week, we think it could take over a year or so for iran to actually develop a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don't want to cut it too close. that would seem to be something worth discussing, the president is setting out a time frame in which iran may have nuclear capabilities. one would think that would go over with the israelis who have long been ringing the alarmt bells. what is your assessment? >> both countries' intelligence is actually pretty much in line. there's not a lot of disagreement around where the iranian program is at. i think the question that has come up is what's the best strategy, what's the best timeline for implementing that strategy for preventing iran from getting a nuclear weapon. i think it's a good opportunity for the president and the prime minister to make sure they touch base, are on the same page, sanctions and diplomacy are the president's chosen route and there are others who look to see more concrete steps sooner rather than later, and the presi
frame that president obama had mentioned over the past week. and that's a year or so. the israelis had been suggesting earlier that the time frame may be moving at a faster pace. and that indicates that there is at least a year for stronger diplomatic efforts or international movement to press the iranians to compromise, to prove that they, as they claim, that they're not developing a weapon or, you know, to find terms that will allow the international community to step back and the israelis not to be concerned about annes so essential threat. >> president netanyahu thanked to president for unequivocally affirming israel's sovereign right to defend itself against any threat. does this not portend to some kind of military action given that mr. netanyahu said at the united nations, as you know, that he expected iran to have the capacity for a nuclear weapon by perhaps summer this year at the press conference, he said within a year, does this not suggest that there's likely to be some kind of military action? >> well, it's unclear as on the whether or not israel has taken other kinds of a
." thank you for joining us. don't forget said records show. i'll see you next week. lou: good evening, everybody. president obama today reacting to reported, but unsubstantiated claims of the use of chemical weapons threatening the syrian regime led by a dictator. president obama made his declaration during a joint news conference with israel's prime minister. the first day of his first trip to israel as presidents. >> i had made clear at the use of chemical weapons is a game changer. any more horrific gains. i believe that if the regime has lost all credibility and legitimacy. lou: making an effort to assure the israeli people that america has throwback in regards to ending the iranian pursuit of nuclear weapons and that any decision by netanyahu to protect the nation's security is his to make while pointing out that both israel and the united states are squarely on the same page. >> not a lot of daylight between our countries assessments in terms of where a run is right now. i would not expect that the prime minister would make a decision about his country's security and to defer th
for our national security. >> warner: netanyahu was asked if he agreed wth mr obama's comment to israeli television last week that iran was over a year from having a nuclear weapon. >> if iran decides to go for a nuclear weapon, that is, to actually manufacture the weapon, then it probably, then it will take them about a year. i think that's correct. iran right now is enriching uranium. it will-- it's pursuing it. it hasn't yet reached the red line that i had described in my speech at the u.n. in any case, iran gets to an immunity zone when they get through the enrichment process, in our view... in our view. and whatever time is left, there's not a lot of time. >> warner: the president continues his trip tomorrow to the west bank to speak with palestinian leaders, then back to deliver a speech in jerusalem. >> ifill: i spoke with margaret a short while ago. margaret, it's good to see you. this is the president's first foreign visit of his second term. why israel, and why now? >> warner: that's a good question, gwen, because as i think we know from the campaign, president obama never did
>> live from dw here in berlin, this is the "journal." >> barack obama and benjamin netanyahu reaffirm u.s.-israeli ties and stress a common stance against iran. >> bailout crisis meetings continue in cyprus as the central bank announces the banks will remain shut until next week. >> and from berlin to the himalayan kingdom of bhutan, we asked what makes people smile on the international day of happiness. it is a visit heavier on symbolism than on substance. president barack obama is in israel right now, where he has promised america's enduring support for the jewish state. he also stressed the need for peace. >> but obama is not expected to provide new initiatives or policy moves in the area of the middle east peace process, which is secondary to israeli leaders when compared to the possibility of a nuclear iran. president obama and prime minister netanyahu have given a press conference. we will talk to our jerusalem correspondent about that in a moment. >> but first, the israeli president said that president barack obama has a vision that can transform the middle east. the p
in a tree-planting ceremony. then later today, president obama will meet with benjamin netanyahu. coming up at 7:15, the hot topics on the meets with the israeli leaders. >>> well, now we're less than a week away from the day the u.s. supreme court will hear oral arguments on proposition 8. next tuesday the court will hear arguments before or against prop 8 along with another same-sex marriage case. the challenge to the federal defensive marriage act. yesterday, the court said it would release same-day audio if the arguments are presented. the court's statement did not mention television coverage which legal experts probably means it will not be allowed. >>> a bay area consumer group warning about potential hidden fees with oakland's municipal i.d. card. the city created these i.d. cards in part for undocument emergencied immigrants. a debit function was -- undocumented immigrants. a debit function was put in place. there's hidden fees. there are fees for enrolling and and another fee for every time it's used. >>> b.a.r.t. is dealing with a big bird problem. it's expected to cost the transi
. a poll published last week shows only 10% had a favorable attitude for him. president obama and israeli leaders both agree that something needs to be done to keep iran from developing nuclear weapons. israel threatened to take military action if iran appeared to be on the verge of having a bomb. president obama pushed for more time for peace talks but says military action is still on the table. president obama once hep weres up his -- once he wraps up this conference, he will head to speak to benjamin netanyahu where they will hold a press conference in about three hours. back to you. >> thank you. >>> a sheriff says it appears a 911 call to a middle school school in southern minnesota was a hoax. the school in new prague, minnesota immediately went on red alert and locked down each class when a caller said there was someone with an ak-47. a search of the school turned up nothing. they say everyone is southwest. this school is 45 miles southwest of minneapolis. there are about 875 students at that school in grades 6th through 8th. >>> a
and for america to understand. last week, one of the rules of the obama administration put out was to say that if you're going forward with any sort of project you're going to have to tell us how much carbon that will put out into the-- so it's called the nipa analysis and that's like putting a ten pound weight on everybody's ankle. >> sean: that's a hundred pound weight. >> it sounds like a minor bureaucratic detail, but it will strangle-- >> you guys will weigh in and i hope you'll pick a fight with you here. i've got to tell you, dana, they're not doing this, not taking this message to the american people. if you tell the american people we can save social security, medicare, balance the budget get out of our financial troubles, build schools in your community and prisons whatever else they need to build, we'll have a lot of money left over. why aren't the republicans wrapping their arms around this and screaming it from the roof tops? >> republicans do not the have someone who is pounding the table with a positive message about growth, prosperity and the economy. >> sean: come on, stu
unemployed americans 99 weeks of cash compensation. nearly two years. the question is what does president obama think of the congressional progressive caucus? my opinion, he likes it i don't think the president believes that crew is fanatical because they want what he wants. by the way, the far left kooks do want to cut one thing, defense spending. they want to bring that back down to 2006 level. somewhere in iran is cheering. there comes a point when americans are going to have to decide what country, what kind of country they want. even taking half of what affluent americans earn, feds couldn't possibly afford what the far left wants to provide. so we would eventually become greece or cyprus if the u.s. dollar collapses and people stop lending us money. some conservatives believe that's exactly what the far left wants. a collapse of the entire capitalistic system. some on the right believe that president obama is actively working toward that. certainly senator bernie sanders of vermont wants socialism in this country and so do most of his compatriots on the crazy caucus. yet, americans
poll numbers are getting more negative. here are some of the headlines in the last week or so. obama's approval drops as americans take a dimmer view of his economic policy. quote, after overhyping sequester, obama poll numbers stick. in recent days we read, obama's approval rate cratered in the past two months. and obama honeymoon may be over. and chris stirewalt editor of power play on foxnews.com live. the honeymoon is apparently over if the mainstream media declares it's so, it's so, i guess. here is the deal, they were going down, the fox news polls, the gallup news poll showed the president's numbers going down and then came the charm offensive, met with the republicans and paul ryan and had the dinner and there was the wine and merlot and okay, look, i'm trying. and now we get the latest poll out and shows he's still 47% approval rating, 47% disapprove, which is down consistently from where it had been just a few weeks ago. >> well, maybe the israeli embassy is on to something there and he could get like sophia, blanch, get the girls together. >> megyn: well done. >> do like a
, how to deal with the budget and they refuse to believe that obama has put a plan on the table. there's a plan. it's on whitehouse.gov and pretend that he hasn't done that yet and even this week with the rnc autopsy plan, the election was a big fact coming right up that they couldn't deny and acknowledged some things and i'll give them credit for that. on the economic issues, they completely ignore them in that report because they really don't have an answer. they want to cut taxes and cut the deficit at the same time. those are their two agenda items. you can't do both. they are just trying to ignore it and hope it goes away. >> now, when you look at the reaction, patricia, there's no wonder they are being defeated at the polls and poll after poll shows that americans are not going their way but i think this only further drives the wedge between the american voters because people are offended when it is clear you are not even being honest with them. >> well, yeah. and i think what americans are really want is just an honest discussion of the issues and if people come at an issue and
obama also making trips to the palestinian authority and jordan. back in the bay area, for the third time in less than a week at thornton junior high in fremont was the target of a bomb threat. the most recent threat was monday afternoon. it turned out to be another false alarm however some parents are is that they were not notified. >> i have a daughter here. the school is doing everything possible in order to protect the students because they'd our number one here in fremont. >> fremont police say they alert the public about the bomb threat using their necks old system. the school superintendent says the district did not contact parents about the reason false alarm. >> 8 of 6:00 a.m. and the train hit and killed a pedestrian on the cal trans tracks in san jose. the resorts that by northbound train near west virginia street. the trainer recently left the team in station and there was only one passenger on board. several other trains were delayed. those are as was the start around 730 last night and the death of the fourth fatality on the cal trans corridor this year. >> a live look
week as we saw yesterday with the latest report. >> andrea mitchell was reporting how this could be a new beginning for netanyahu and obama. how there was more warmth between them or less after chill between them might be a better way of phrasing it. but i wonder to the extent that true, how much do you think that has to do with the simple fact that obama was re-elected last year? so much of the frostiness in the first term seemed to be na netanyahu was basically betting that obama would be a one-term president. betting on romney victory. here is the re-elected more confident and assertive obama making a trip to israel. did that force netanyahu to be more con ciliatory maybe in. >> at the end of the conference, the prime minister talked about this is second term president and third term prime minister. they are stuck with each other, that's the honest truth. but it is more than that. they are both making a concerted effort to put a few nas ew face this relationship. the main goal is to introduce himself to the israeli public and tell them he has their back. this is coupled with d
it endlessly but the truth is don't. >> oren's husband is today in israel for president obama's first visit there as president. is there anything that you learned in the haight as a teenager, any spirit that if it could be brought to israel and the region this week, during this presidential visit you would like to infuse the local leaders with? >> you mean, peace and love? >> yeah. a lot of bragging rights there in case bravo ever does a real housewives of jerusalem. so right now we'll say your smart phone can do a lot of things -- text, tweet, turn into a virtual bubble wrap. but can you place it next to a body and get a complete noninvasive medical diagnosis? now "star trek" fans may know where i'm going. bloomberg says the guy who invented the blackberry, mike lazaritus is putting up $100 million in an effort to turn "star trek's" hand held medical tri co tricorder into reality. some say the devices could become as common as a household thermometer and help us all live long and prosper. want to know if your favorite show is about to get the ax? your twitter feed might hold a few clues. a
at this point seeing how the sequester is going to be limiting our military capacity in the next couple of weeks and next couple of months. no. i think it was nice rhetoric by barack obama, but we've much more important things to be looking at. we have to make sure iran doesn't get a nuclear weapon, we have to make sure the two-state solution doesn't disappear in israel. whether or not the syrian government in the beginning of their civil war was using chemical weapons doesn't need to be a priority right now. >> for once i agree with the president, laying the marker down. the united states of america has never sat on the sidelines when people have created this type of chaos against their own people so i think certainly senator mccain and senator graham along with the president have laid a marker down what is proper and right. this is a serious thing. when people use chemical weapons against themselves, what else will they use against their neighbors. i think the president was correct, he was right, it's very serious and something that should concern the american public. we're certainly weary of
in this country to become legal. the week before he defied the hawks in his party to lead a 13-hour filibuster in protest of the obama admission's secretory over its drone war fare program. >> dan senor, you've been involved in republican presidential primaries lately. sorry about that. how would those issues stack up in new hampshire and iowa and south carolina and florida? >> i think the politics, his politics on pure fiscal issues will have tremendous resonance as his father experienced in some primary states and caucus states. i think what is untested is -- from a -- from a political standpoint is his position on foreign policy. his father never really broke through on the neoisolationist politics at the grassroots level beyond a narrow segment of the electorate. rand who i've spent time talking about these issues is much salvier than his father. >> his father blamed in effect u.s. foreign policy for 9/11. i haven't really dug in deep to the cross tabs but i'm guessing that probably doesn't help in western iowa. rand is salvier than that, right? >> sure. talking about the president being i
